competition and openness in the markets. this is something that is totally in line with the e.u. inspiration of social market economy, and we are lead by, first of all securing the sustainability of public finances in the long-term, including a pension reform, and also looking at the de facto for growth. infrastructures, long delayed in italy, we have simplified the process of building infrastructures and injected in acceleration on those. then the functioning of the markets and that we have introduced more competition for example, in the leader of professions, like to call themselves -- but many pressures to become liberal. and in the separation between gas production and gas distribution, to give you another example. all in the shopping hours and the commerce sector. also a lot of significant indication concerning -- of course this needs to be continued and one issue about the italian elections in which i will not go unless -- here today is which political configuration is more in line with the need to sustain these structures. but i believe that -- not even the largest countries can reall
. we have the eu rising starts, the outstanding british film. but in the major categories, clearly people do look to the bafta the way same they would look to the gloelden gloep globes to see how things were going. "argo" is seen by everybody as a pack leader. there is a strange absence there on best director. whoever wins best director will be remembered as having won in the year that the most significant contender wasn't nominated. >> why isn't he nominated? >> who knows. who knows. i think we got it right, but who knows why he wasn't. one reason is because what they've done with the oscars now is increased the best film from five up to ten. now you have i think it's nine nominations this year. of course you're going to get a mismatch because there aren't the same number of films that there were directed. >> mark, good to see you. thanks so much, indeed. >> thanks for coming by. >> always a very good turn out, as well. >> i still think silver linings with a different name would have done so well. >>> anyway, the clearing up is occurring after nemo. what impact will this have on r
that perhaps is even more fundamentally dangerous for britain and much of the rest of europe than taming the e.u.'s superstate tendencies. this is the problem of attitudes and how the institutional expression in the economy. because as i illustrate in "becoming europe" the prevailing conviction across most of europe is that the state is the primary way in which we address common problems and meet our responsibilities and obligations to our fellow citizens. that such obligations might be realized outside the realm of politics doesn't apparently occurred to large numbers of european political leaders including i have to say a considerable number of the center-right european politicians. so in this regard i have often wondered what -- would think if he read a particularly important book that was written 180 years ago by one of his compatriots. because although it's about the new world, democracy in america was sent written for an american audience. alexis de tocqueville's intended audience was europe. so i think you would be astonished to learn how the americans observed by de tocqueville dealt with p
with the eu. not necessarily with a decent of urgency. it does not suggest a great deal of pace. it may surprise you that we want this as much as you do. ladies and gentlemen, important as they are, services can be seen in perspective " for be made of the defining narrative. while we must sort out these challenges, it is not in our interest to define racial profiling. we will discuss market access issues at the trade policy forum. we also need to find a positive narrative that will bind our countries together. one is in the energy sector. without access to energy inputs, we will not be able to sustain economic development. therefore, an enduring partnership should not only cover technological and regulatory aspects, but established commercial partnerships. as the u.s. becomes a net exporter of energy, we hope we can develop mutually beneficial partnerships. renewable energy, biofuels and emission technologies. in each of these cases, there can be immediate benefits for both sides. you're interested in exporting natural gas and exporting to non fta countries would help stabilize internat
about, well, for the moment, the eu -- we have that kind of psychological factor. a healthy private sector. and the problem is what? the problem is government and bad policy. and that's what we have to offset. >> but jim iuorio, i want to know where to invest. do we buy gold, silver, and commodities? do we buy banks, which are lagging a little bit? do we buy industrial cyclicals to play the world boom, if there is such a thing? in other words, how do you invest right now, having passed this 14,000 benchmark? >> well, there's a couple things. first of all, when caterpillar released its earnings it talked about good numbers out of housing. and you stloe in china. you invest in things like copper. you know i still like gold and silver. and today with the green light from the fed i'm still going to stay in things like those. i am in bank of america. i am in health care. i think the stock market looks pretty good. you said before, though, the stock market tends to be a leading indicator of the economy. when the fed pumps in so much money and global banks pump in so much money, i think yo
dangerous for britain and much of the rest of the euro in the eu superstate tendencies. and this is a problem of values, attitudes, and how these are given in institutional expression in the economy. as i illustrate in becoming europe, the prevailing conviction across most of your is that the state is the primary way in which we address : problems and meet our responsibilities and obligations to our fellow citizens. such obligations might be realized outside the realm of politics and that does not apparently occurred to large numbers of european political leaders, including, i have to say, a considerable numbers of center-right european politicians so in this regard have often wondered what a confirmed man would think if you read a particularly important book that was written 180 years ago by one of his compatriots. because although it is about the new world, democracy in america was not written for an american audience. the intended audience was your. i suspect he would be astonished to learn how the americans built with problems that were beyond an individual's capaci
-- not pipeline, partnership. he announced the united states was ready to begin negotiations with europe on a u.s.-eu trade ownership. we could not agree more. let's hurry up and put american business to work. let's get these deals done. by the way, it is not just about asia. it includes all the coasts of the united states and canada and america. it is fascinating. we need to get this going and move that european deal. the working group is about to put out a report. i think it will probably sustain the best teams we can think about. let me give you this in a minute. europe is in a slow economy. europe is our largest export partner. europe is china's largest export your. china is our fastest growing export partner. if europe goes into the can, the whole triangle goes in the can. that is a bad idea. this would be huge on both sides of the pond. there are a lot of big trade agreements that have been talked about for a long time. these would put cash on the table right now. it is important that we welcome global investment. we want people to bring their cash here. come here and invest or come here and vi
either by europe at large, the e.u. or china somehow swallowing up every bit of innovation that exists in the world. they're no longer, i think, worried about our economy being overwhelmed beyond our shores. >>brian: we're not worried about china hacking and taking our intellectual property. >> with respect, i think the vice president is flatout wrong. it does affect us economically what happens over there. chaos in europe, mass recession in europe, the fallout, maybe the collapse of the euro currency, that does affect us economically but also politically. can president obama now go on a road show as he will today and push for higher taxes which is what got italians into trouble? can he push for maximum infliction of pain on america? can he do that in light of what just happened with the voters in europe? i suspect there are economic and political fallout in america from what happened yesterday in italy. >>brian: if he could do that by not connecting the dot, a responsible leader would connect the dots and talk about how they're related. i'm not an expert on italian politics, but when
a letter asking the e.u. to declare hezbollah a terrorist . >> one minute remaining. >> the terrorist organization in 2007 while killing our soldiers in iraq. he refused to sign a letter to president george w. bush talking -- he said to engage direct, talks with the government of iran. he was for that telling bush to do it. he voted against the iranian sanctions. he was one of two senators who failed to sign a letter to president clinton showing unconditional support for the state of israel. i would argue his record when it comes to iran and vale and statements he made put him well out of the mainstream and "the washington post" is right on the fridge. and now is the time to have somebody on the fringe of iran and israel serving as secretary of defense for the reason. ly vote no. debate should continue and when we get back unless there's a bomb shell. thank you. >> thank you. i yield the floor. senator from michigan. >> yield five minutes for the senator of wfd. >> senator from west virginia. >>. >> madam president. proudly support chuck hagel for secretary of defense. if he can make
for secretary of defense. hagel refused to sign a letter that asked the eu to declare hezbollah a designated terrorist group. he doesn't want to dictate foreign policy. the fact of the matter is members of congress who enact the legislation determining that it's illegal to provide support for terrorist groups like hezbollah and hamas and hagel said we need not to go at this alone and cross border support to defeat hamas and it's extremely troubling that the so-called future, perhaps future secretary of defense refuses to work across the pond, to ensure the safety of america. >> at a time when we are, remember, the netanyahu speech before the u.n. and showing the red and the bomb and tipping point. at a time when we have israel making real warnings about iran getting nukes and what israel would do in response this is the guy heading up the pentagon and obviously israel will want our help if they find themselves in an armed conflict with iran. what are the stakes for israel in seeing hagel? president obama is going to set that policy not hagel, right? but he's got some independent power. >> we
in what our total costs are for the two different 250eu7stypes of employees. so when we talk about a sequester of taking $85 billion i've just given you over $85 billion over ten years and just by looking at a few programs. so when we hear the number and we think about the federal government being twice the size it was 11 years ago and that we're 2% higher in -- 27% fire terms of discretionary than even if sequester goes through as it actually still year. so it's important that wecan people about where we are on these projects. let me gorks for a second, talk about -- we put outlled the waste book. we put it out every year. we gave 100 examples of how tax dollars were wasted last year. $450,000 for on used aret in my state. $325,000 for robot squirrels. this is a grant that was issued to study what we already know about robotic squirrels and their inches interactions with rattlesnakes. i can't see that that's a priority for us when we're running deficits that we need to be spending money on that type of research. we spend $91 million a year giving a -- you won't believe this -- cha
. but if the questioning gets difficult i'm going to try to look like i were him and direct the questions away from 3450eus. the central question is why is the economy not growing faster after a deep recession? and i think there are three primary reasons for that but before i state those reasons i would like to make one factual observation which is this is not the weakest recovery in memory. it is not the weakest of the last two. the 2001 recovery was substantially slower than this one. what is different about this one is it is not v shaped in the way professor points out in his testimony. it was after the deep recessions of 1975 and 1982. i think there are three reasons why that is. the first is this recession came from the popping of a bubble unlike the 1982 and 1975 recessions and popping bubbles are much more difficult to escape from the grips of than are the other. so in 1982 my dear friend paul voker rose the -- the interest rates rose to over 20% on mortgages. economic activity slowed dramically as interest rates came down that pinned up demand came right back. that is not having a do a lot of stru
responding to the eu budget meeting which is reportedly winding up right now. there has been a lot of auction. adding 20% candidate as i can see here. the stoxx 600 is adding about 0.5% all told. take a look at this, bwin.com, there's talks about new jersey governor chris christie opening up online gaming. it leaves the possibility out there for atlantic city casinos to offer games like poker online. so bwin has a join venture with boyd gaming which is licensed in new jersey. and the view among analysts is that other states, potentially federal legislation could follow suit. this is a small step in the direction of perhaps allowing more and more of the u.s. market to gamble online, like you can already with this one. up 19%. watch shares generally speaking in the gaming session today because you can expect there will probably be some similar moves. just the final word, we saw the yen strengthening avenue the yen appeared to talk down some of its easing moves. the yen was still 1% stronger. the nikkei ended the day 12-day winning streak with one of its longest. back over to you. >> thank you,
u.s. emissions are actually down, i think it is 8%. eu emissions are down like 9%. but chinese emissions are up 30%. look at, look at where the coal is being burned. i think in five years india is supposed to become the second largest burner of coal right behind china. so the global picture on emissions is, if the national one wasn't enough to make you cry, i mean, just sort of think globally as sort of where we're going, you know? so, that's the crying part. and you asked me bright spots so. i mean there actually are, there actually are some, relax, i mean, the news, car standards that were just promulgated will double fuel economy by 2020 five. california is moving ahead and i think is a real bright spot. rggi is strengthening their targets. that's a bright spot. the cap-and-trade in australia looks like, i mean, who knows, another government might fall over their program here but it's a bright spot. they have got a plan. they have got a program. south korea is thinking about instituting emissions trading. china has seven sort of experiments around the country looking at emis
of say, how about the last few years? the u.s. emissions are down, i think 8%. e.u. emissions are down 9%. chinese emissions are up 30%. look at where the coal is being burned. i think in five years india is supposed to become the second largest burner of coal right behind china. the gobal picture -- if the national one isn't enough to make you cry, think globally about where we're going. so that's the crying part. you asked me for bright spots. there are actually are some, so relax. the new car standards will double fuel economy by 2025. california is moving ahead and it is a real bright spot. they are strengthening their targets, that's a bright spot. they got a plan, they have a program, south korea is thinking about instituting emissions trading. china has seven experiments around the country looking at emissions trading. you see some signs then you have these big looming clouds. we have to find a way to get through this and, god, i hope you're not looking for me for all the answers. it isn't all bleak but people better get on to it and get on to it really fast. otherwise it will get
, but not much more than that. the eu is providing non-legal aid, i am wondering if the u.s. is considering this? and if you are ceding influence for the ron. afghanistan has asked u.s. troops to leave the province and i think within two weeks, can we get your comment on that? >> with respect to afghanistan, i understand the concerns they have expressed. appropriately, when a complaint they may have thought to be appropriately evaluated. they will be, i assure you. i have taken appropriate note and i have had a great deal of involvement in afghanistan with president karzai. there are evaluations of how things might have gone wrong or might have changed. we are working on a bilateral security arrangement and this transition process. we have had a very good conversation with the president. president obama talked to him before making announcements. we have listened very carefully to his observations about wanting to speed up the transition with respect to management of security. i can assure you that we are finely attuned to the needs of the afghan people, and the most effective ways to make this t
